a penny saved..
is a penny earned.

Except when I see new shoes..
So, here is my gift to you..

I hope, I’ve got nothing’ to loose.

Saving some dough
some stress and burdens too..

I want to buy a cottage with you…
I hope that this will do.

Here is to 2010..
I cant believe how time as flew.

…Did I mention that I love you?



{That’s the letter I wrote to Mike. I put all the pieces into an envelope and I set it on the counter. I’ll let you know what he thinks when he opens it.
We are starting this year off with a BANG. He might pass out when he sees what I did..
I want to be debt free. I want to manage money, keep our budget and learn to save the money I get every week.}

Oh my gosh. That's amazing. What a fantastic step... you're kind of making me want to cut up my credit card - I only have one but it's definitely proving to be a very slippery slope. Can't wait to hear what he says!

Aww good for you! We went debt free this past year and it felt so great. Good luck!!

Thats a great resolution.
I am reading Dave Ramsey's total money make-over. Debt free is one of my resolutions too.

That's so cute! I love the poem you wrote - and the meaning behind it is great. Loves. I want to be debt free too but I just don't see that happening :(

this is awesome! TJ & I have been working on becoming debt free for almost a year now, we shredded our cards and have been working and working on paying them off. Getting married very young and thinking that plastic was magic proved to be a recipe for TROUBLE but we're on our way out of that debt, some day!

I think that's an amazing goal. I think your goal should also be to take care of my debt as well.

Heather said...

Wow! Good luck!! I love the poem to him too!!
